Tine de Conflens

Tine de Conflens

The Tine de Conflens is an impressive waterfall, where the Venoge and the Veyron meet in a magnificent rocky place.

The tumultuous waters of the Veyron and the Venoge have shaped canyon-like gorges in the limestone of the Tine de Conflens. Magnificent waterfalls are visible.

The Helvetians, contemporaries of the Romans, built a « châtelard », a fortified camp, of which the remains of the enclosure remain.

A signposted path leads to the bottom of the gorge where you can admire the perfect torrential « marmites » that « play » with the water.
Let us note finally that the word Tine means barrel and Conflens comes from the word confluence.
